If you're looking to add a splash of color or instantly transform the decor of your kitchen, pendant lights are just the ticket. Easy to put up (and just as easy to take down if your tastes change), they're an affordable way to update the look of a room. Suspended in multiples above an island, or singly in a breakfast nook, pendants can function as task lighting for food prep or mood lighting at mealtime.
